Description: It is listed on business listings for Louisiana. It is a donut shop that serves breakfast. They do everything from scratch. I had the best freshly made corn beef hash I had ever had there. Daybreak Donuts & Diner is dedicated to hospitality, good food and good friends. All our food is carefully prepared to order and priced to ensure repeat business. You might imagine yourself back home in Grandmas kitchen. Thanks for joining us!

“GREAT MEMORIES AND BREAKFAST AT THE DAYBREAK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2013

My husband and I recently moved from the Louisiana, Missouri area to Washington DC and we have lost hope of ever finding our east coast version of the Daybreak. Rather than compromising, we just rarely eat breakfast now. Not worth it. This is one of our favorite places on the planet and the thought of the place evokes warmth, acceptance, comedy and generosity. All descriptors reflect the owners.

The Daybreak sits a block up from the mighty Mississippi at the humble end of the main commercial street. The Daybreak is broken-in, well-lived and feels like sitting in the crowded kitchen of a seasoned, confident cook...the heat, bacon, maple, the scrapping of the spatula, coffee perking...pre-read, re-folded newspapers..local chatter., plates sliding..where's the ketchup??

The Daybreak makes the best donuts that we have ever tasted and all are handmade the morning before by owner Sean and maybe a helper...fresh, moist, chewy...The menu also offers the best biscuits & gravy we have ever had.We have tested the Daybreak by trying this regional delicacy in other places and we found that no restaurant can match it. Try the corned beef hash or the grilled donut with butter and syrup! Breakfast is inexpensive, portions are large and the coffee is strong and hot. Space is limited so come early, sit close to your neighbor, enjoy and clear out so the next visitor can make a memory at the Daybreak.

“At day break, it's Daybreak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2013

The only thing moving in Louisiana, Mo., at 6 am are the fishermen putting boats in the Mississippi and the donuts getting served up at Daybreak Donuts, and both are iconic as far as I'm concerned. There is not a simpler way to start a day then walking down to Daybreak, ordering some fresh, hot coffee and an Apple Fritter, then walking the 50 yards down to the riverbank to watch fishermen hum up and down the Mississippi as the sun peeks over the Illinois hills to the east. Is this America or what?!
While I've never had the eggs, hash browns, bacon, biscuits, gravy, sausage or other country breakfast fare that is made-to-order in the small kitchen at Daybreak, I can tell by the regulars who I frequently see there that they, too, must be iconic.
In Louisiana, if you want to start your day right, it must begin at Daybreak.

“Great little place to sit with friends & have breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2013

This is a place where you can sit anywhere you can find a seat (crowded at times) with friends or strangers. Great service and the food is very good and reasonably priced.

“Excellent food!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013

The best donuts bar none. Always fresh and the best ingredients. The other food is just as good - great variety with more than enough on your plate. Worth the trip no matter how far you have to go. Worth the trip!!!
